Looks absolutely awesome! No heat shield with this one or did you just not install it? My dad was here in Vegas last week and he visited a local custom house. He drives one of those big engined Chevy 4X4 Silverados. Anyhow he asked about the intake sytem. And they said its a waste to install without the catback exhaust. Because if its taking more in more needs more go out for true performance reality. He is so awesome I have more mechanical knowledge yet he thinks he has more. He used to race Mopars on racetracks. He has experience but I have school so there dad. Plus he tears em apart and procrastinates on the put back together part. I seen him do it since since the late 60s.

i would return it except for one thing. the performance shop i bought it from said they would put it in for me no charge. so i figure what the hell. except they put it in wrong and cut off the only mounting bracket. the bracket you see in the pic i made myself. so this will have to last until i can get some $$ for a new one. as far as roaches go, my engine compartment does need cleaned up but its no show vehicle, its my only means of transportation.

I have been looking around for a decent cold air intake and I was wondering what you payed for yours and where you got it from??

i got an apc intake to, i paid about 90 bucks with shipping, but i don't like it much. but you can tell the difference too. the welds on the damn thing broke so it just sets on the brackets. but i just ordered a volent from performancetruck.com and it ran me 200 but its plastic so it will stay cooler.
